CREATING A VISITATION SCHEDULE
Parents who do not receive custody of their children during divorce proceedings may be entitled to visitation rights. Visitation is often granted when sole custody is given to one party rather than the couple agreeing to or the court awarding joint custody.
A schedule can be made that establishes a specific visitation plan, which may include:
Regular weekend visits
With a strong presentation of relevant facts, you will likely be able to receive a positive case outcome that allows you to maintain a relationship with your child or children. Contact the Garden City divorce attorneys today for knowledgeable assistance pursuing visitation rights with your child.
MODIFYING YOUR CHILD VISITATION ORDER IN NASSAU & SUFFOLK COUNTIES
There may come a time where the existing child visitation order needs to be revised and updated. If your situation has changed or you have improved your situation and may be entitled to longer and unsupervised visitation, a modification may be permitted. The family court judge has the legal authority to determine whether a visitation order can be modified.
Some of the reasons for a visitation modification to be approved include:
Employment schedule change
Increased guidance for the child from a parent
